Missouri Workers' Compensation Attorney

Dedicated to Helping Injured Missouri Workers

Workplace accidents can result in serious injuries, including spinal cord injury, head injury, neck injuries, back injuries, burns, brain injury, fractures, and hand injuries. For most employees, workers' compensation will be their only option when it comes to injury compensation.

Filing a claim on your own and fighting with insurance carriers for a just settlement can be frustrating and often results in less compensation than you deserve. Retaining the services of a Kansas City workers' compensation attorney can significantly improve your chances of receiving maximum benefits for your injuries.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work in Missouri?

In Missouri, if you have suffered from a work-related illness or injury, you can receive benefits such as payments to cover your loss of earnings and medical bill coverage. The severity and nature of your injuries are determining factors in the amount of benefits you can receive.

You may be able to receive temporary disability benefits or permanent disability benefits depending on the circumstances or severity of your injury. In order to receive benefits, your injured must be reported to your employer by 30 days after the injury or diagnoses.

Protect Your Rights as an Injured Employee

When an employee is injured on the job, workers' compensation can pay for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent partial disability, and permanent full disability. Properly documenting your claim is essential, especially when it comes to providing medical evidence regarding the extent of your injuries. Our firm knows what insurance carriers look for when evaluating a claim, and will make sure your documents are meticulously prepared.

We can also help you avoid mistakes such as:

  • Using sick leave to recover from a workplace injury when you qualify for loss of wages compensation
  • Counting on your employer to file the appropriate forms
  • Failing to respond to requests for information in a timely manner

We will manage all aspects of your claim until your case is concluded so that you can stay focused on your recovery. Our office will keep you informed of the progress of your claim and give you complete access to any case-related documentation. We will be attentive to all of your needs and concerns by promptly returning your phone calls.
